Salary:  £39,324 to £46,924 per annum
Post Type:  Full Time

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Surrey invites applications for two posts of Lecturer in Secure Systems.

The Department of Computer Science embodies the ethos of “applying theory into practice” across its research and teaching activities. Its research activities are focused into two research groups: Secure Systems, and Nature Inspired Computing and Engineering (NICE). Surrey is recognised as an Academic Centre of Excellence for Cyber Security Research by GCHQ.  Surrey has made substantial investment in the Secure Systems group, which comprises eleven members. Both posts are part of a strategic drive to strengthen and integrate our core safety and security activities within the Secure Systems group. One of the posts will aim to complement the recent appointment of Professor Liqun Chen.

This is an exciting opportunity in a department that is growing its reputation for delivering quality interdisciplinary and applied research based on strong fundamental principles.

Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant subject or equivalent professional experience. An ability to produce high quality outputs is also required. The appointed candidates will be expected to contribute to all aspects of the Department’s activities. We aim to attract outstanding candidates with strong visions for research, combined with a growing international research profile, a passion for teaching, and who value collaborative research and working in a team.

We aim to attract candidates that will conduct research in areas such as trusted computing, safety verification, security verification, data privacy, cyber-physical and internet of things security, cloud or mobile security, machine learning and data analytics applied to security, human aspects of cyber security, formal methods and applied cryptography. We are seeking individuals that can contribute to fundamental research and turn it into practice. We welcome applications from candidates whose research areas complement the existing research of the group.

We are looking for individuals that can inspire students through their curiosity for leading-edge aspects of technology.  In particular, the teaching duties of the role include: delivering high quality teaching to all levels of students, supervising undergraduate project students and postgraduate dissertations and contributing to the teaching of security and other practical areas of Computer Science, such as computer networking, network security, web-based architectures and concurrency.

These are full-time and permanent positions. The posts are available from January 2017 but there is flexibility in the start date. The University is located close to the Surrey Research Park in Guildford and within easy commuting distance of London.

For further details and an informal discussion please contact Dr Helen Treharne, Head of Department at H.Treharne@surrey.ac.ukand Professor Steve Schneider, Director of Surrey Centre for Cyber Security at S.Schneider@surrey.ac.uk.

The University is committed to building a culturally diverse organisation and strongly encourages applications from female and minority candidates. 

Further information about the Department is available at: http://www.surrey.ac.uk/cs

Presentations and interviews will take place on 16th or 19th December, 2016. Candidates need to be available for both days to aid scheduling. The presentations will be in the morning and the interviews in the afternoon. During the interview process there will be an opportunity to meet members of the security group the evening beforehand for an informal dinner and also meet with other colleagues within the Department on an informal basis.

Please ensure you upload a CV and publication list as part of your application.
